National Voter Registration Day Can Help Renters Impact November 2017 Gubernatorial Election
National Voter Registration Day, on September 26th, can increase voter turnout among low income renters and their allies and be critically important in making affordable housing a priority for both the next Governor and New Jersey Legislature.
As Election Day approaches, Monarch Housing Associates urges housing organizations to engage the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s Our Homes, Our Votes Campaign and non-partisan voter registration and voter education efforts and join National Voter Registration Day.
National Voter Registration Day will take place on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.
This coordinated day of events involves volunteers and organizations throughout the country hosting events and canvassing neighborhoods to engage new voters and to update registration records.
New Jersey’s deadline to register for the November 2016 election is Tuesday, October 17, 2017.
- National Voter Registration Day partners can receive branded posters, stickers, and other materials to promote events and recruit volunteers.
- The National Voter Registration Day website features a directory of all planned events so that future voters and those interested in volunteering can find nearby events.
- Partners should add their own voter registration events to the directory.
- National Voter Registration Day coordinators can also provide support with communications and social media to promote local events.
